the terrifying prospect that one result of the bankruptcy of the city of detroit could be the thousands of potential personal bankruptcies caused by the slashing of retirees' pensions. a full discussion on that is coming up. all that plus i am absolutely geeking out a little bit over what i think is the coolest car ever. the tesla. i will tell you why it's so cool but also why it's so important. >>> but tonight we begin with a man who i believe is the most dangerous politician on the american right. in october 2007 i sat in the media gallery of the united states supreme court and watched the solicitor general of texas argue on behalf of the state that he should have the ability to put to death a mexican national, jose, who had been convicted of raping and murdering two teenage girls in houston. he won that argument and he was executed by texas on august 5th, 2008, despite the objections of the united nations and the international court of justice. at the time, i had no idea who this man arguing on behalf of texas was. but all i could think was holy crap, this guy is good. it was one of

, they tried to blow up a transatlantic jet that was descending into detroit. so, you know, it's very difficult to figure out exactly where to defend. and so therefore, you have this very to some degree vague warning out there saying that people should be vigilant and at the same time, you know, don't change your behavior significantly. >> you were talking about the sort of yemen connection. you know, i think it's a bit confuing when you hear the attacks are attributed to al qaeda. you have al zawahiri. what can you tell us about the relationship between these two men? >> well, i think it's interesting this communication took place between them. we hear a lot about how al qaeda in the arabian peninsula is the sort of -- the affiliate that -- the only affiliate that can do anything anymore and al qaeda in pakistan are to some degree marginalized and he's spending so much time in hiding he can't help run a global organization. this shows the two are in communication and zawahiri has some influence over them. wuhishi was an aide to bin laden and in many ways ascended the ranks because of bin laden
to look at a monitor, let's put one in chicago, in detroit. if we had detroit's murder rate, we'd have 4,000 extra people killed last year. >> you're doing the things that defenders of stop and risk always do. >> it's effective. >> to talk about the effectiveness. one is we have seen declines in the murder rate across cities, across the country. san diego, new orleans, los angeles. in some cities bigger than new york. second of all, we've seen a decline in the murder rate that dropped off the cliff in the ten years before bloomberg more than has it has dropped since mayor bloomberg. third of all, what is your story for the causal connection between stop and frisk and the decline in the murder rate? >> well, i have law enforcement experience. i'm a public safety expert, so to speak. and there aren't many people in law enforcement who will tell you that stop and frisk is not a very, very effective tool. and what this judge said today, by the way, was not that stop and frisk is unconstitutional at all. she actually said, i'm not calling for an end to stop and frisk, i'm not looking for the

, to seattle, to boston, to milwaukee, to wilmington, to detroit, to charlotte, the largest city in a right-to-work tate in the south. today's demonstrations are an indication of just how the movement has grown over the last several months. a first week on this show, we covered a one-day fast food worker strike then being called the biggest job action ever in that industry. then last month, more than 2,000 fast food workers went on strike in seven cities including chicago, st. louis, kansas city, missouri, flint, michigan, new york, milwaukee, detroit. not only has the movement grown, but it has captured the national imagination. >> $15 an hour. what do they think, those arches are made of gold? >> earl eaier today we reached to several companies to see if they had anything to say. i'd very much like to discuss the issue with the representative of any of them. less than a handful responded. mcdonald's issued a statement.

,000 handbag which, of course, would buy you four houses in detroit these days. you know, like where we're worried about this kind of 1%er experience, but on the other hand it is, it reflects back some of what the president did in his solidarity with trayvon martin where he says part of what this tells us is that respectability, that class, that income, that achievement and accomplishment does not in the end wipe away the realities of racial unequinequality. >> but, this is what i find to be so valuable about these testimonies recently. both president obama's and winfreys which is there's this idea of sort of, you know, people getting sorted a little bit. these folks are good, these are bad. you can tell these people are climbing up and these are not. there's not. folks come, they look all kinds of way and still get essentialized in this way. >> this is a very old part of sort of a civil rights movement that goes all the way back to the turn of the century when much of the initial responses, i'll just tell you the story again of plessy v. ferguson, that establishes separate but equal. a
